The End........

I know I gave you all the highlights (and the lowlights - think sale day!) But here are some pics of the week. I took over 100 pictures of Jessie and Tyler and all the projects....

Jessie and Daisy

But - here are some more action shots.

Can I say how sad and glad I am that the fair is over? We have all worked so incredibly hard at this......and are already starting to plan for next year now. How many coming 10 year olds do you know that think the perfect birthday present would be going to Columbus, 100 miles away, for a steer show? Or going doe hunting with her daddy in PA?

But this weekend, I'm going to stop and smell my roses (if I can find them through the weeds in my flower beds). I'm hoping I can pick the last of my tomatoes and can them, freeze some sweet corn and get rid of some weeds...... I know I have high hopes for the weekend but I miss my flowerbeds and my garden.

Jessie and Alli

Jessie and Oinky Doinky - I love that name!

Tyler's eggs

There is a very good chance we will be going on vacation in January to Georgia - but not for some R&R - oh no! There is a pig show in Atlanta that Todd's cousin wants Jessie to show in. Hopefully Georgia in January will be warmer than Ohio:)

I am working on something crafty -hopefully I'll be back Sunday with more details......

See ya,

Although you all worked so hard, look at the payoff. It's wonderful to see how the kids did as well as you. Can't wait to hear if you found your roses. Our gardening season is just about done. Have a wonderful weekend.

All that hard work was sure worth it! and just look at how much the kids learned!

after going as much as you do, R&R would be good, so if you do go to GA, stay an extra day and just RELAX!!! January would be a great time to play in the sunshine! tee hee

What a lot of work, but I'm sure it is all worth it. Look what you are teaching your children.
Good luck with your harvesting of the garden you have.
Miss wonder woman!! That should be the name of your blog. Wonder woman!
Great example for me, thanks.
